Thank you for a wonderful weekend. Wish we had a little more snow. There was enough for the kids to sled right down the front hill. They loved it. Thank you
First, the house was part of a 'golf and country club', largely forested. The country club facilities are apparently not intended for convenient use by renters, as the process and cost of using the facilities as a non-owner renders them painful enough that it's just easier to go to public facilities elsewhere.
Second, as for the house, yes there was a view of the lake, but heavily screened by trees. The house is badly in need of maintenance and updating. The layout is extremely awkward, with the kitchen seemingly mired in the fifties. It is situated on a steep hillside, with the ground right up to the deck, which contributes to mustiness and a feeling of dampness everywhere. For that reason, we found the finished basement area virtually unusable. The bedrooms, other than the master, were very small, and the master was a two story climb, again awkwardly laid out. Furnishings were cheap and outdated throughout.
Outside, with neighbors crammed in tight on both sides, there is little sense of privacy.
In summary, for the cost, the house and location just is not a good value. Certainly for our next northern lower peninsula vacation, we will look elsewhere.
Our Family had a wonderful time! The view from the deck and hot tub was amazing! It definatly was a great place for relaxing after a full day of skiing and snowboarding. We will definatly consider coming back again next year!
This was the first time my family and I rented this property and it's wonderful. The owner was adding a hot tub when we left and the deck is being refinished. The country club setting was great for playing golf, tennis and swimming. The house itself is lovely with an amazing deck with a view of Lake Michigan. Highly recommended.
The home is located in Birchwood Farms Golf and Country Club.
